Making Me Events
Planning a wedding in New Hampshire while living in DC is no easy feat. That's why we called in Phebe at Making ME Event Planning Firm and never looked back.
Phebe is the queen of vintage and romantic design. She totally got the vibe we were going for, took the ball and ran with it. She had wonderful recommendations on how to save money, and even did many DIY projects on our behalf (glazing mason jars anyone?). One of her great recommendations was getting flowers from Whole Foods, which I would guess saved us at least $1,000.
Phebe was always accessible via phone and email whenever we needed her. She kept us on track with checklists and reminders of things we needed to do. We had a shared Pinterest board that I kept filling with ideas, so I always felt involved.
In the end, our wedding day was absolutely perfect. I didn't stress one bit knowing Phebe was in charge. Our guests are still raving about how well designed and uniquely personalized our wedding was. We owe tons of thanks to Phebe and her team for Making ME a happy bride.
Phebe is amazing! She is such a sweet woman who is PASSIONATE about design, events, and everything vintage. She was my DOC for my wedding and she met with me in the months leading up to my wedding. She gave me advice and helped me with things I didn't even think of. She created a personalized schedule for me and coordinated all my vendors and participants in the wedding. She decorated everything the morning of the wedding as well in a limited time. The day of the wedding I was calm, cool, and collected because I knew Phebe was there to make sure everything was decorated, all the vendors were on time, and to keep the wedding running smoothly and as planned.
Hire Phebe. No, really, it's that simple. You are insisting on a bit more information, aren't you? Well then, here goes (remember... you asked for it!): Phebe is a top notch wedding coordinator. She makes things (like crochet hooks) magically appear when you forget them at home, and home is more than an hour away. She works magic with your florist when your venue drastically changes the set-up schedule without any warning. She gets inside of your head (in the best way possible) and brings your vision to life. It's almost eerie how good she is, but you'll LOVE the final result. Putting Phebe in charge means that you get to sit back, laugh with your friends, and actually enjoy your day. Phebe = bridal relaxation and happiness. Do you really need another reason?!?! Well, if you do, hire her because she is super sweet. Your photographer will adore her. Your friends will adore her. Your bossy Aunt will adore her. She is the kind of person you want to be friends with, and who gets the job done in a major way. So go hire her. It will be your best wedding decision ever. :)
My husband Mike and I used Making ME Event Planning for our wedding this past September, and I must say I honestly do not know how I could have gotten married without Phebe. This is coming from an absolute and udder control freak.
Once Phebe was on our team, she kept up with my husband and I, months prior to the wedding, to make sure we were accomplishing every little detail associated with getting married and making sure our vision of what our special day would look like came out.
She also kept both Mike and I engaged in the entire process, this was a HUGE plus! Alot of planners we talked to, would only talk to me, that did not sit well with Mike and I.
Her professionalism and team made working with her an absolute dream come true.
A few days before the wedding, Phebe came over to go over our final production list, that listed hour by hour what would be going on, where each of us should be. It really put both Mike and I at ease because we knew that we could put the entire wedding, one of the most important days of our lives, into the hands of Phebe and her team.
The morning of our wedding, Phebe called both my husband and I to make sure we were up and going and if there was anything last minute that we needed. That morning while we got ready Phebe went to the reception hall to make sure everything was set up correctly, and make sure everything was running smoothly.
Once we got to the church, Phebe came out to the limo to notify me of a few problems that she wanted to check with me on. Apparently the florist had dropped the ball and put red bows in place of orange bows down the aisle, and had forgotten the rose petals for a big exit. Phebe said no worries she would remove the bows, and during the ceremony she ran over to the local grocery store to purchase roses so we could still have our big exit. That exit ended up being one of my favorite photos from the entire day and it only happened because of Phebe.
Phebe also ran interference on some issues that I did not even know happened until I got back from my Honeymoon, including upset guests about seating arrangements, helping me with my 62 tie bustle, making sure my husband and I were where we needed to be at all times, making sure we both ate and were well hydrated, and making sure our vendors had a go to person besides my husband and I.
I could honestly go on and go for hours about Making ME Event Planning, Phebe, and her staff. My husband and I are so blessed to have had her there in our corner so we could concentrate on what was important, enjoying our friends and family on an amazing day, that was filled with love and happiness, and honestly not an once of drama because of Phebe.
I cannot recommended her and her team enough! And I can promise you, if you hire Making ME Event Planning, you will understand from the first time you talk to Phebe, exactly how special and wonderful it is to work with her.
Ladies, if you are looking for a fantastic wedding planner then you have come to the right place! I was only 3 months into planning when I decided there was no way I could do this on my own. I just happened upon Phebe's website, and once I heard her music on her website, I knew I had found the perfect partner-in-crime. My fiance' and I met her and were instantly at peace and felt that everything would be okay (with her assurance, of course). She not only worked with our budget, but assured me that our vision for our wedding would be absolutely gorgeous. When we had issues with the vendors, she was there to smooth things out and really put all of our fears at ease. Both my fiance' and I knew that we had made the right decision to hire Phebe when we walked into our venue and everything was beyond what we had imagined. Whether you are just starting out in this crazy ride or have been planning for months, please consider Phebe for your team. She really did make this process into marriage a wonderful transition and we hope to work with her and her team again!
I had a great time working with Phebe. Everything was so well organized and well thought out it couldn't have gone more smoothly! I was very impressed by her ability to stay on task and on time. Also, everything looked absolutely beautiful! Her creativity and cheer were so helpful! I would definitely recommend her and work with her again.
Phebe's Wedding Event was polished, organized, creative, and thought was put into every detail. This turned out to be a fantastic event and I had a great time. If you are looking for someone who is creative, fun and determined to provide you with the best experience possible...this is your girl. Thank you, Phebe!
Phebe was the event planner for a wedding that I styled, so I got to witness first hand her attention to detail and personal involvement in everything that she does. She is extremely creative and inventive, even down to the smallest details, yet all the while completely personable. She can literally translate anyone’s special event into ‘The Talk of the Town’! Her services are unparalleled and I would highly recommend Making Me Event Planning Firm to anyone who wants to make their special occasions even more memorable and stress free!
Phebe of Making ME Event Planning Firm is a goddess. Seriously. She's the one you want on your team on your wedding day so that all of your ideas and plans can fall perfectly into place and you won't have to worry about anything except for being the bride. Okay, and maybe kissing the groom.
She is professional yet grounded, strong yet gentle and this girl knows how to throw a party! I was beyond impressed at the quality of work she does, not to mention the organization she has before the wedding!
Phebe is your woman. You won't be disappointed!

Hi! I’m Phebe.
I have loved everything about weddings since I was 8! I remember wearing a pink and white fluffy dress with lots and lots of delicately darted tulle. I ate wedding cake off of the prettiest plate I’d ever seen, and I danced the night away all along thinking it doesn’t get much better than this. Years later I landed a dream job which included planning corporate events & event management, then later worked with a company doing styling & design, I loved both opportunities and took full advantage of all of the unique learning experiences each provided. It was a few years later when I decided to start my business, and I was instantly taken back to that impactful moment when I was 8 and all of those unique experiences, I hadn’t realized it but for years I had been slowly building Making Me Events! On a sunny September morning Making Me Events was created, a business focused on carefully crafted events and intentionally inspired vintage place settings. While I am based just north of Boston, MA we are packing up and moving to TEXAS, so I will now be serving both New England, Texas, and the beyond!
My promise to you…
I promise to be your cheerleader throughout your wedding planning journey, give insightful and thoughtful answers to your questions, recommend coveted vendors who fit your design aesthetic, cry with you at your wedding, and of course eat cake!
